DIY PCB Milling Machine – Part 1 – Building Frame

A maker space is never complete without any fast method to prototype a Electronics project. And the longest process in it is to make the PCBs. Till now I have been using the Toner transfer method and Ferric Chloride. You can watch a video I made here. Etching method involves many steps. The printing, transfer, […]

My new FeCl3 pcb etching machine prototype

FeCl3 pcb etching machine prototype based on a Lyman Turbo Tumbler I had lying around in the shop (demonstration with water). Normally the Lyman Turbo Tumbler is used to polish things based on a construction with an unbalanced motor which has a bowl on top filled with abrasive material and the thing to polish. But […]

PCB Laser Drilling, Etching and Cutting With Single Process

http://directmachining.com/applications/pcb-laser-processing/ PCB Laser Drilling, Etching and Cutting with a single process on a laser machine controlled by DMC software. ScanLAB galvo scanners and Aerotech positioning stages are combined to reach 5 µm accuracy and fast machining speed. See how how to prepare PCB laser etching process on DMC here: https://youtu.be/wAHG_d0hjIw DMC software controls laser machines […]

PCB Etching, Dying and Tinning

This video shows a method for transferring a laser printed circuit onto standard copper clad, it also shows how to dye your board and how to coat the tracks in tin. More information is available from http://www.sonodrome.co.uk Check out my newer method for staining PCBs here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzqyEX… source

A PCB etching machine

Video HD.- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxIUBGx3Mo4 PCB Etching Machine. PCB acid bath home machine. Agitator for etching. El cloruro férrico es muy lento para la realización de circuitos impresos, aunque ideal pues apenas genera vapores, no como otras mezclas químicas de ataque rápido que emiten gases, por lo que deben emplearse en lugares ventilados. Para acelerar el proceso […]

PCB Etching Machine (homemade)

Iron III chloride etching machine. I use a 450W heating element to heat the iron III chlorid to 50°C – takes about 10 minutes for 500ml etching solution. Temperature is controled by a simple on-off circuit with a sensor directly placed into the etching solution. To improve the etching speed i use an eccentric mechanism […]
